Osun State:Police Apprehended 21 Suspects and Threatened to Prosecute Parents Shielding Criminals

There is no denying the fact that Nigeria government alone is incapable of tackling the mounting spate of insecurity issues nationwide due to continued incidents of criminality in the country.

Tackling insecurity in the country requires,in my opinion, the collaboration of the Nigerian government, the citizens, local and international security interventions because of alleged influx of sophisticated weapons into the country as recently acknowledged by the government.

Reliable news reports have comfirmed that Osun State Police Command has apprehended 21 young suspects for alleged participation in cultism, kidnapping and other associated illegal conducts.

CP Wale Olokode who is the incubent Commissioner of Police in the state, publicly presented the accused at the Police Headquarters in Osogbo, Osun State capital.

Olokode made it known that the accused were successfully apprehended in Osogbo, Ife and Ikire, revealing that some suspects were let go when it was obvious that they were wrongly captured and that those apprehended were cultists and abductors.

But some of the accused faulted the claims by the police, saying that they were wrongly rounded up at a location where they were enjoying themselves.

Hammed Muhammed who was one of the accused thst was apprehended with one barrel gun with 3 live cartridges informed the news reporters that he left the North for Osun State with his other outlaws inorder to abduct innocent persons for ransom

Among the arrested persons,3 of them admitted that they belonged to Buccaneer cult so as to emerge winners at the student union government elections in their school.

Meanwhile, CP Olokode assured the public that the accused would be duly prosecuted accordingly.
